Selection Process

To be eligible for one of these Worthington Youth Boosters (WYB) Travel Basketball teams, the player must attend a Worthington elementary school, or be a resident in the Worthington School District. Participants are required to attend at least one tryout session that will be offered for each grade to be eligible for team selection. There is no charge for tryouts.

Selection Process:

The players will be evaluated by members of WYB, potential coaches of respective teams, and coaches of the varsity programs at Thomas Worthington and Worthington Kilbourne High Schools. Players will be evaluated on their individual fundamental dribbling, passing, shooting, rebounding, and defensive skills. Players will also be evaluated in how they fit into a team concept. The evaluators will meet and form teams based on all evaluation criteria available. The number of teams in each grade will depend on how many travel caliber teams can be formed, but our desire is to have 2 or 3 teams in each grade consisting of at least 8 and no more than 10 players per team.

Notification Process:

Players who are chosen for the team will receive an e-mail message as soon as possible after tryouts have been completed. The player will have 24 hours to accept the roster invitation. If the player does not accept the offer, it will be rescinded and the roster spot will be offered to another player. All players who are not chosen for a travel team will receive an e-mail message referring them to other basketball opportunities.
